If you haven't added this new South Florida DLC to your flying areas I highly recommend that you do. I grew up in Florida, learned to fly there and accumulated all my rating there. Even so, I never managed to fly over Fort Jefferson, never landed at Tamiami, now Miami Exec, and never read the history of Biscayne National Park or Dry Tortugas National Park.
I bought my copy within hours of it being available on Steam but immediatelyi left on a 2 week vacation. I am now back and have some time to look around at some of the details.
I am flying with the South Florida DLC on my center screen with fsWidgets maps active on my left screen showing my position, speed and altitude, and using Google Maps on my right screen to zoom in on anything of interest.
I had no idea that so much new stuff would be included. Like all the new trees, tons of custom buildings, a grass runway, great presentation of all the different colors of water, manatees, people walking along the beaches, boats and ships, new detailed cars in parking lots and of course the 9 new airports.
This DLC has a very nice mix of general aviation airports, large and small, several commercial airports, 2 military airports, and private airports.
I was taxiing around Miami Exec and noticed several new repaints have been added. Nothing spectacular, but very nice and clean new colors. Take a look at the attachments.
This got me thinking that some of us would be interested in a dedicated thread showing the improvements that have been added. I can think of several groupings, like trees and plants, people, manatees, boats, aircraft repaints, historic buildings and lighthouses, and of course some of the custom buildings.
I could spend a week exploring the Dry Tortugas park area and Fort Jefferson. While we wait for the R22 and heliports, I am working on adding a small runway on Bush Key near the fort using fsCloudPort. This would be a barebones runway for the Cessna and other slow flying planes.
Maybe we can start uploading screenshots with a hint on where to find all these new items.
Thanks Jeff and IPACS.
